Troupe Beverly Hills

Episode 2: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor finds the difference between bling types and analyzes Kim's flirting style.

Sep 13, 20110

Paging the Ski Concierge
After more dating discussions over dinner and watching Adrienne struggle with cracking an egg, the ladies get fitted for their ski gear. It's important to note that one, these woman know how to work mountain PJs (one-third of the Wives were wearing leopard), and two, these women know how to work it while wearing PJs. Kim had barely mentioned that she was in need of boots before Lisa threw the ask out there for single ski pros. And Lisa thought Kim didn't wait long enough on the plane! Kim hadn't even had her pancakes yet before the entire house was trying to set her up. Let the woman slip into something less comfortable than flannel animal print first, geez.

Once the gang hits the slopes, we see the talent divide up with Taylor spraying snow on poor Lisa and Adrienne as the stay behind on the bunny slopes. Lisa claims she hung back to help Adrienne, but I suspect that she just wanted to move slowly enough that more people could recognize her poodle/ Doctor Zhivago hat. Plus, being near the lodge provided better access to those chocolate chip cookies.

Bravo, Taylor has a lot of fans that want to know about her health, her world suddenly changed and she must be devastated but I really like her , so my best wishes to her and her little Kennedy.

Love this show. Of course I watch all the housewives. I started with orange county. This is one of my addictions.

Actually Taylor asked Ken at the dinner party why he wouldnt go to a therapist.I watched the episode again tonight and Ken didnt bring up the subject nor did he commit on Taylor's issues.He was giving his opinion because Taylor asked him why would he not go.I didnt pick up any rudeness in his answer.If Taylor was at an emotional weakness at the party then maybe she shouldnt have attended.Ken was not a bad guy.

I feel bad for Taylor, like everyone does. She seems like a sweet person and it sounds like she was enduring a tough marriage. I really hope good things happen for her. She has a good attitude and loves life.

I like Camille much better this season; she actually seems happier without Kelsey. My favorite will always be Kyle. She is beautiful, inside and out, and honest. I like Adrienne, too, but she needs to be nicer to Paul! He is a sweetie.

Okay, I actually like all the ladies, but some not as much as the others. I've always liked Kim and she is by far my favorite. I like Camille too and not sure why she got such a bad reputation. She seems nice. So Camille and Kim are the best and the rest are cool too. Oh, and I like Adrienne a lot too. So far, great season!

Russell was a good man who was depicted poorly. My heart goes out to his children and family. I love Lisa! She and Ken are a gas and it is obvious that the other ladies are "jellybean". Speaking of "jellybean" Kyle is not a good friend or sister, although she is stunningly beautiful. I love Kim. I don't give a hoot if she has an addiction problem, not sure I believe she does. Love, love, love her. Everyone of the other women are constantly filmed boozing....constantly. (Hello pot, this is Kettle!) I liked Camille last season and I like her even more this season. She was ill matched with the goofy looking toad anyway. Kudos for finding your own voice. Adrianne is a strong woman who obviously undervalues her husband.Your chef is a giant jerk. I hate to kick Taylor while she is down so I will reserve my opinion. I'm sorry for the implosion of her marriage and the loss of her husband.

I don't understand why the ladies are not going to blog. I agree with all the other comments about the viewers wanting to read the blogs. I for one can't wait to read the blogs that' is what makes the show complete. If Taylor doesn't want to blog keep her out of it. She wasn't a fan favorite anyway. She is the one that caused all the trouble last year with Kim and Kyle and would never admit it. I love Lisa for speaking her mind. She is a class act and I love, love, her. The show is not complete with out the blogs. Come on Andy let them blog. Love, Love the show.

Lisa you are beautiful lady I can only hope I turn out to be like you when I get older. I think Bravo should have a Lisa and Ken show. I would totally watch and I know a lot more people who would to. :)

Why aren't the housewives blogging? I'd rather read theirs not yours. Lisa has changed, not sure why. I feel so bad for Taylor she is really a broken person and I hope she gets better.

I love love love Lisa as she is so refined and classy! I wish I had her closet and I thought she looked so cute in her white ski jacket and matching hat! I see nothing wrong with Ken letting their small dog sip out of a champagne glass..that is how they roll in Beverly Hills. I live in a small ranch home, but years ago I was visiting my family in the Hollywood Hills and had an opportunity to have dinner and a tour of a huge Beverly Hills mansion that belonged to their dear friend. As I walked through their kitchen I thought omg this is stunning..until I walked into another kitchen that was just for their maids..imagine that! We dined in a huge dining room where the furniture was all carved with lion heads and overlooking a huge rose garden. Those people were so down to earth and loved their dogs so much that the dogs also had dinner in this grand dining room and I remember the wife holding two small dogs at the table. I love my dogs as well and I admire both Lisa and Adrienne!

At least have Jay Mohr blog if the ladies are not participating. He is hilarious, always read his before the ladies, keeps it real and hilarious :)

I have to agree with PA mom about those furry rats people carry around that they call dogs. Where I come from, you don't bring a dog to a dinner party. Actually, I think that that applies worldwide. Secondly, if your hostess allows you to bring your pet, you don't bring them to the dinner table. I don't know anyone that oblivious to this but I can promise that you that if anyone let a dog drink from from one of my glass at a dinner party, Game Over! Get the **** out of my house and take your furry rat with you. Tongue the damn thing in the privacy of your own home.

In regards to the "difference in sparkle"This weeks show hit close to home.On my husbands side he has 2 sisters and one sister in law. We attended one of his sisters sons weddings, the two sisters and sister in law( sister in law is Indonesian who married their brother for US citizenship, Ive been married to their brother 30 years), including his mom were all wearing the same" less sparkly "bracelets.It was like a soul sister bracelet click I wasn't included in. I complemented them all with their pretty jewelery. In my head I was thinking fake sparkles. It's all or nothing for me. Btw, my Indonesian sister in law, sales fake designer handbags on ebay. Like I said, "it's all or nothing for me"

Ha, it was as though this weeks show was meant for me to watch. I'm the real deal or nothing. I'd rather wear a sterling silver bracelet with turquoise or corral mounted beautifully on the piece. To me that's a real authentic piece. The ironic part of the show this week is, I attended my nephew from my husbands side of the family.

Last year I couldn't stand Camile, but I have to admit that this season Camile and Kim are my favorites. The other ladies play to the cameras too much.

My heart goes out to you Taylor. Please do NOT listen to the cold cruel people who say bad things about you. They don't see what really happened. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time. You did nothing wrong.

Kyle, I love you! You are the best!!! Lisa, I used to like you but you are becoming a bit rude this year. I thought Brit's supposedly had manners. You are being really tough on Taylor. Kim, I'm liking you more this year. Camille, I'm liking you more as well however I don't think you will ever win me over with what happened last year.

I'm really enjoying this new season.

While I miss the blogs from the ladies, I can certainly understand why they aren't blogging given the circumstances. Hopefully they will feel up to blogging later in the season.

I don't know why everyone is getting all up in Ken and Lisa's grill. The man didn't say that anyone who goes to therapy is weak. He said that HE wouldn't go to therapy because HE would feel weak. There is a significant difference in those 2 statements - unless everyone thinks that he is not entitled to his own feelings in any given situation. I wish Ken & Lisa would've been a little more gracious about it (as has been their practice this past season) but I think they were right. People need to listen to what he actually said, not what they think he said.

One thing I can count on with this show is that Lisa will always be who she really is ...no false pretence with her or Ken ....love them both. This show would already be over without these two. Kyle and Taylor can already leave the show. I'm starting to really like Camille .....I too am starting to believe Camille about the tiff she had with Kyle last year.

I'm sure the ladies are not blogging because they need time to digest what happened to Russell. I wish they would, though. Sharing their feelings is not only a healthy thing to do, but they would be able to see how much the fans love and support them. I can certainly understand if Taylor wasn't ready to blog, but let's face it... we all felt like we knew Russell too. If Bravo associates have to keep blogging on behalf of the ladies, then let Kim Moreau keep doing it... her blog is hillarious and a fabulous way to take our minds off of the sadder things.

There's a recent post asking info on Taylor's Gucci bag? Does anyone know the answer? I can't find that particular style on the Gucci website? Does anyone know what year that bag came out? and where/how to find it? (season 2, epidsode2).

Thank you "Millers Mommy" for saying exactly what I was thinking...Sheesh people use some common sense along with a dash of empathy!

In the minority here, but I thought Lisa acted a little too entitled last year, and it's gotten worse with the first two episodes. Ken was wrong saying what he did to Taylor; it was ungentlemanly to say the least. And the dog? Listen carefully manner deprived VDP's... dogs do not have a place at the table, whether it is a picnic table or the luscious table at that dinner party. And letting that dog's 'tp' tongue drink out of that beautiful goblet? What's the matter with you people?

Now at BC, LVDP is still acting like she knows more, and better, than anyone else, and worse, that she deserves to. I hate to sound like an 'ugly American', but please dear Brits, learn some manners.

Will everyome quit going on and on about the blogs from last year? Things change as surely you know from just watching this show.

Lisa, you are the only lady in the group. Kyle needs to shut up and mind her own business. Kim, I'm still worried about you. Adrienne lay off your husband. Camille, I don't trust you as far as could throw you. Taylor, wishing the best.

And Ken with Lisa is the best on the show.

Ken didn't say Taylor was weak for going to therapy. He said if he would go to therapy he would FEEL weak. A dinner conversation, especially started the way Paul did by yelling down the table "what is going on" is open to all at the table. At the time, Taylor was examining her marriage and whether to continue in it. She's had problems with Lisa since last season because Lisa advised her to stay out of Kyle and Kim's business. Also when Taylor hinted of problems in her relationship with Russell, Lisa hinted that Taylor needed to weigh the fact that she wanted to be happy vs whether she wanted the Beverly Hills lifestyle. Lisa, in her cameo shot hinted somewhat of the same. When you are a "fragile" state as Taylor claimed to be at that time, you can be vulnerable and think things are aimed at you and they are not. But Kyle, being the "I want to be in every scene" person that she is, should not have said "I don't blame you, I felt it was a little offensive". I don't like Kyle, ever since she treated her sister so poorly last season. I see that Adrienne is trying to get more camera time as well by mistreating her husband..too bad.....another marriage gone away.

Lisa please let us see the you we did last year. You've everyone's favorite all time housewife. I know you understand who the real trouble maker was last year. I just think you are not going to put up with it anymore.

The problem I continually see with Kyle, is that she can be the voice of reason or defuse a situation...but instead she just adds fuel to the fire. The Situation at the dinner table with Ken ....all Kyle had to say was Ken is a great guy and he didn't mean it the way Taylor took it...but no instead Kyle comes out of the bathroom with a attitude against Ken. It's almost as though Kyle will only defend Taylor .....not her sister, not her good friend Lisa.....only Taylor.Kyle you are not a loyal friend or sister.

Give it rest ppl...someone from this show recently passed away. Im sure the reason the ladies are not blogging is to give them time to grieve.

Does anyone know where I could purchase the infinity scarf Kyle showed on ski trip?

I am guessing that the ladies are not blogging because of the loss of Taylor's husband and it is out of respect and concern for her and her child. I would imagine, or at least hope, that they are rallying around Taylor and that is why they have not been on the blogs this season. This is just my guess though.

Firstly, thumbs up to Taylor for having tried all she could to save her marriage.

Secondly, Kyle saw Taylor’s highly vulnerable state of mind, and she was being a good friend to Taylor during the dinner by being there for her when she needed someone to hear her out.

Thirdly, no matter how much Ken is entitled to his opinion, his comment was undeniably in the wrong place, ill-timed, and insensitive to Taylor’s well-known personal struggles. But he was sensitive to Kyle’s word “offended” and even attacked her with Lisa’s help. Kyle’s correct choice of word was confirmed when Taylor used exactly that same word to answer Ken’s question by saying, “I was OFFENDED that . . .”.

Fourthly, Lisa did not give Ken a gentle indication to apologize. In its place, she further aggravated the couple’s position by coming up with an excuse to leave, that no one found credible, to get Ken out of his faux pas. Ken is a grown man that should have been quick to say “I’m sorry”, but he did not. Instead, the couple chose to run away from their self-inflicted problem.

Also, Ken should have not fed his dog from the wineglass which is inappropriate table manners and disrespectful to the hostess. Then he drank from the same glass which is anti-hygienic. Uh! It’s insanitary to have pets at the table because they constantly release hair which may fall on the food.

Lastly, congratulations to Adrienne and Paul whom did an excellent job embarrassing themselves in front of their guests. This couple seems to be the next to need therapy.

I understand why Camille was such a wackjob last season, but she drove me crazy. Now this season, she is healing and responding to the tough sitution remarkably! She is staying up beat and trying to start anew. I would hope to show even half the class she has shown in a situation like that! Props to you lady!

Stop with the asking about the ladies blogging! Use some common sense. There was a death so perhaps they don't want to blog because there are the idiots that will broach that subject. So again..... let's clue in here.

Okay, no offense, but if the Housewives aren't blogging this season than no one really wants to read the editors and producers' blogs.
